I may or may not have completely skipped Thanksgiving recipes on this blog. So little time and so many things to do. Sorry friends, but I'm just going to twist things around and say that I was being a rebel. This may also be known as "Oops. I didn't get around to planning that far in advance." Sorry.
But we press on...
You know those recipes you really want to make, but you keep putting off for some reason or another? Yeah, I have those. In fact, I have quite a few of them. Most of those recipes involve yeast or phyllo dough.
Recently, I saw that one of those recipes that I have a love/hate relationship with, spanikopita, was remade by Beth M of Budget Bytes. Spanikopita is typically the second thing I order when I sit down at a Greek restaurant. (Clearly, I order the saganaki, or flaming cheese first. Seriously. The cheese is set on fire. You have to love it. Hot, flaming cheese. Stop it now.) I've always wanted to replicate the spanikopita I get at restaurants, but each recipe I took a look at required me to work with those dreaded phyllo sheets. Nope. Thanks. Bye.
Then Beth turned things around with a single blog post. I was introduced to the beautiful spinach pie. It makes use of a puff pastry sheet, frozen spinach, and lots of cheese. Yeah, let's do it!
